Cornish Playhouse at Seattle Center

Cornish Playhouse Arts Incubator

16/17 Arts Incubator Class Application Process Open

What Is It?

The Cornish Playhouse Arts Incubator residency is designed to encourage artistic risk-taking by supporting artists in the creation of work that is outside the boundaries of their usual genre, discipline or comfort zone. The goal of the Cornish Playhouse Arts Incubator Residency is not to create a final, polished product. Instead, the residency is designed to give artists time and space to “incubate” -- to develop an idea or concept and explore it. The Arts Incubator Residency is part of Cornish Playhouse’s public benefit to the Seattle community..

How It Works

Groups are selected to participate in the Arts Incubator Residency by completing the application and submitting them by June 10th 2016. Groups are notified late July if they have been successful.

Who Can Apply?

The Cornish Playhouse Arts Incubator Residency is open to anyone age 18 and older, including professional and non-professional artists, teachers, ensembles and groups, and students. The Residency is open to both those within the Cornish community and those outside the Cornish community. The lead artist applying must be a Washington state resident.
